Default Tinting your Crosstour

Did you guys get tinting from Honda or you had to do an aftermarket job?

The factory tinting was quite sufficient for us.

Default Window Tinting

I've had my driver side & passenger side front windows done with a light tint and so far have not been caught by the long arm of the law but have had friends that had to remove thiers, so a word of caution for those in Canada avoid dark.

I had my front windows, windshield, and sunroof tinted to 70%. Barely noticable as far as tint goes, but a truly dramatic difference on the comfort in the car. It's also very nice when the sun is coming through the windshield or cars on-coming at night.

A fine for exessive tinting has always worried me some. I like the look but cant really afford to be a heatscore. I have enough trouble with speeding and parking tickets as it is already.

My tint is so light that you can;t tell, and by not running a windshield stripe it makes it less obvious as well.

I had my front sides done to match rear sides (see photo gallery) and a metallic on the roof. Usually not an issue in N.M.. I like the looks!!

I want to bring this thread back to life. I am going to have my front door windows tinted to match the back doors. I don't know what the percent tint currently is, but I see that there are three or four different tints from the front doors to the rear hatch.

I want to tint my front door to match the back doors. Does anyone know how to decypher the tint stickers. I don't believe that the dealer added tint so what I have appears to have come from the factor this way. The tint stickers on the front door have the following information:

AGC Automotive
E6 43R-008011
DOT-376 M2H3 AS2
30B
Temperlite

The back door windows are a bit different, and the small rear side windows are different from all the others, and of course the rear is different.

I have 3M 20 on my front 2 windows and it is a good match for the side glass.

I had my fronts tinted to 20% (which matches the rear).

Just be mindful of your local tinting laws, as 20% is often "too dark" for front glass.
